We’re so proud of our Toggi team members as so many are doing amazing things for wonderful causes! Jade, who is one of our area sales managers, is busy training for the London Marathon in aid of MS – an amazing challenge that she will undertake in less than 4 weeks – all 26.2 miles of it!
Our Jade is like the rest of us typical horsey girls, she is not a ‘runner’ and her exercise regime consists of mucking out, riding her 4 horses…and doing the odd show jumping show, so a marathon really will be quite a challenge! Jade is currently training 7 days a week without fail (which is particularly impressive given that it feels like pretty much still in the middle of winter) and she says she has actually started to enjoy it (though we’re not sure whether to believe her on that one!). Jade comments that her horses think they have a new rider on them, so maybe there’s something to be said for becoming super fit.
Jade is running the London Marathon for MS-UK, multiple sclerosis UK. This is a charity that is very close to Jade and her family’s heart as they lost Jade’s Nanna to it. Jade says “I’m under no illusion that running 26.2 miles will be easy but I really do think that knowing that I’m running in memory of such a wonderful lady and raising money for a fantastic charity will really give me a boost.”
MS-UK have given Jade quite a large sponsorship target of £1750 and so has set up a just giving page which is linked directly too MS-UK www.justgiving.com/jade-thatcher.
If you would like to support Jade in her quest to conquer this challenge for such a worthy cause, all donations will be gratefully received. Thank you!
